I had this book sitting in my pile for a while. I am glad I finally picked it up. This is a wonderful series. There was much talk of waking mummies, ghost and curses. I loved Theodosia. Life didn't stop because she had a mystery to solve. She still had deal with the governess her grandmother keep hiring to make her a lady.

This is the second Theodosia Throckmorton adventure. I should have started at the beginning with Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos. There were references to the first book I didn't understand though that didn't stop me from quickly becoming a Theodosia fan.
